Whetstone Stereo

Whetstone4

Like your family's stereo when you grew up, this console has all the electronics in a closable cabinet.

It plays vinyl and mp3's, and networks by usb or by wireless.  The 41" height places the speakers near ear level when you're sitting down.  It sounds bright and clear with generous bass, great for records.

Receiver:  Naim UnitiQute with remote control

Turntable: Rega RP3 turntable with IsoNode Pro anti-vibration feet

Speakers: Guru QM-10/2.  Grill cloth by Marshall Amplifiers.

I looked at this article today and realized how much I still like it.  My wife Pamela and I worked on this house a long time.   Adrienne Breaux really got us.

Architectural installation art by Margo Sawyer

House in Santa Fe, NM, by Page Sutherland Page. 

Completed in 2012, this house is most easily identified by the custom-colored rammed earth walls. 

Our role was to fabricate the joint vision of artist Margo Sawyer, architect Larry Speck, and interior designer  Wendy Dunnam Tita, in tight collaboration with builder Dave Campbell of J M Evans Construction and home owner Rick Torcasso, and definitely architect Bruce Loethen.

Discussions started a year before installation.  Wendy introduced us.  Margo and I spent a lot of time developing the construction system.  Dave Campbell worked with me directly.  He nailed the tolerences to the stepped ceiling, the fireplace, and the hidden ductwork.  The installation went perfectly.

Wendy commissioned custom furniture for the house, coffee tables, office credenza, card table.

This commission was the most professional experience I have had ever.  The early planning was crucial to achieving the quality.  The collaborators worked in a atmosphere of trust and respect.  It should always be like this.
